CD Reviews

Celebration of a 25 year musical and personal friendship

(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you don't yet own any of Caetano Veloso or Gilberto Gil's CDs and are curious as to where to begin, go no further. This is a great starting point. Likewise, for those of us who have a fairly extensive collection of both musicians' work, this is a fantastic CD, because it brings together the 2 different songwriting styles and blends them seamlessly. This is sensuous, exotic, but above all extremely catchy pop. These guys are influenced by musicians ranging from Miles Davis to Jimi Hendrix, but the one thing that stays constant is the African rhythm. I've had it for 2 years, and don't foresee the day I'll be tired of this CD."
Absolutely fresh

"This is my first Veloso/Gil album though I have heard many of their songs elsewhere and it is fantastic. Many of the pieces are so creative yet maintain elements of their origin so you see the exploration and stretching but always remaining true to the Brazilian roots. It's great to just listen to and relax to but each piece also arouses curiosity and pleasure through its originality."
Classic
